    'Unleash the Villains' night announced at DHS

    Limited Time Magic Villain date has been announced.

    It will be held at DHS on Friday the 13th, September.

    "Join in the fun for a night of mischief and a villainous dance party that will last until the 13th hour (1 a.m.)."


    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    So talking with my DS I understand this went over so well that it was, well horrible. Wall to wall people before the event even started. Bus trips taking hours, cars stuck in traffic for 2-3 hours. Up to 3 hour lines for some of the villains. Food and beverage options taking forever and a day. Cast members having a difficult time getting to and from DHS.

    Not sure if Disney is viewing as a success or an ooops. But the Studios were packed.

    I would hate to think that all of those people stood on line to just see a bad stage show with an awful Hades, and then some brief meet n' greets.

    It is obvious Disney didn't anticipate the volume of interest again. That is on them. There was plenty of Mea Culpa's going around from 'one more Disney day' leap day events in both WDW and DL for being ill prepared for the special event. This time to hold it in a smaller venue, with less parking and not prepare?

    How do they throw another event that has been hyped all over social media for over a half of year and not prepare properly for this? Guests trapped on buses for hours needing to use restrooms, endless lines for security, a closed parking lot by 4pm without redirecting guests prior to arrival at DHS to Epcot. Characters lines in a poorly positioned place, not an open area like Indiana or Streets of America, just a bottleneck. Further worsened by not telling guests which lines would be which until the last moment. Even the Characters without extra handlers had problems getting to their area. Very few carts for water, single bartenders at stations. Vogue the place for the Tshirt, now how they didn't know that would be an extremely tight retail space?

    Disney doesn't get the MeaCupla for this one. Disney is aware of parking constraints, interest in special event merchandise. At what point does Disney stop just counting the profits of these special events and actually have a well thought out game plan?
